Abstract: The information collection request concerns the paperwork requirements in the regulations under 30 CFR part 585, Renewable Energy and Alternate Uses of Existing Facilities on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) issued pursuant to the OCS Lands Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1331 et seq. and 43 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.). The OCS Lands Act at subsection 8(p) (43 U.S.C. 1337(p)) authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to issue leases, easements, or rights-of way on the OCS for activities that produce or support production, transportation, or transmission of energy from sources other than oil and gas, including renewable energy. Subsection 8(p) directs the Secretary of the Interior to issue any necessary regulations to carry out the OCS renewable energy program. The Secretary delegated this authority to BOEM. BOEM has issued regulations for OCS renewable energy activities at 30 CFR part 585; this notice concerns the reporting and PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 recordkeeping elements required by these regulations. Respondents are lessees and grantees submitting plans for—and, if such plans are approved, constructing, operating, maintaining, and decommissioning— commercial and noncommercial renewable energy projects on the OCS. BOEM must ensure that these activities are carried out in a manner that provides for, among other things, safety, protection of the environment, and consideration of other users of the OCS. In order to execute its duties, BOEM requires information regarding potential purchasers of leases, grants, and rightsof-way, their proposed activities and their payments to the Treasury and financial assurance. BOEM uses forms to collect some information to ensure proper and efficient administration of OCS renewable energy leases and grants and to document the financial responsibility of lessees and grantees. Forms BOEM– 0002, BOEM–0003, BOEM–0004, and BOEM–0006 are used by renewable energy entities on the OCS to assign a lease interest, designate an operator, and to assign or relinquish a lease or grant. Form BOEM–0005 was designed to document a surety’s guarantee of the performance of lessees and grantees with respect to bonds issued on behalf of OCS renewable energy lessees, grantees, and operators. BOEM maintains the submitted forms as official lease and grant records pertaining to operating responsibilities, ownership, and financial responsibility. BOEM protects proprietary information in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and the Department of the Interior’s implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2), and under regulations at 30 CFR 585.113, addressing disclosure of data and information to be made available to the public and others. Title of Collection: 30 CFR 585, Renewable Energy and Alternate Uses of Existing Facilities on the Outer Continental Shelf. OMB Control Number: 1010–0176. Form Number: • BOEM–0002, Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Renewable Energy Assignment of Grant; • BOEM–0003, Assignment of Record Title Interest in Federal OCS Renewable Energy Lease; • BOEM–0004, Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Renewable Energy Lease or Grant Relinquishment Application; • BOEM–0005, Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Renewable Energy Lessee’s, Grantee’s, and Operator’s Bond; and E:\FR\FM\11FEN1.SGM 11FEN1 3233 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 28 / Monday, February 11, 2019 / Notices • BOEM–0006, Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Renewable Energy Lease or Grant Designation of Operator. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Companies interested in renewable energy-related uses on the OCS and holders of leases and grants under 30 CFR part 585. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 267 responses. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 18,784 hours. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory or Required to Obtain or Retain a Benefit. Frequency of Collection: On occasion or annually. Total Estimated Annual Non-hour Burden Cost: $3,816,000 non-hour costs. The non-hour cost burdens consist of service fees for BOEM document/study preparation, costs for paying a contractor instead of BOEM, and costs for a site-specific study and report to evaluate the cause of harm to natural resources. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The estimated annual hour burden for this collection is 18,784 hours. The following table details the individual components and estimated hour burdens. In calculating the burdens, we assumed that respondents perform certain requirements in the normal course of their activities. We consider some information collection activities to be usual and customary and took that into account in estimating the burden. The following table details the individual BOEM components and respective burden hours of this ICR.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995, we provide the general public and other Federal agencies 
with an opportunity to comment on new, proposed, revised, and 
continuing collections of information. This helps us assess the impact 
of our information collection requirements and minimize the public's 
reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information 
collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired 
format.
    We are soliciting comments on the proposed ICR that is described 
below. We are especially interested in public comment addressing the 
following issues: (1) Is the collection necessary to the proper 
functions of BOEM; (2) will this information be processed and used in a

information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be 
able to do so.
    Abstract: The information collection request concerns the paperwork 
requirements in the regulations under 30 CFR part 585, Renewable Energy 
and Alternate Uses of Existing Facilities on the Outer Continental 
Shelf (OCS) issued pursuant to the OCS Lands Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 
1331 et seq. and 43 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.). The OCS Lands Act at 
subsection 8(p) (43 U.S.C. 1337(p)) authorizes the Secretary of the 
Interior to issue leases, easements, or rights-of way on the OCS for 
activities that produce or support production, transportation, or 
transmission of energy from sources other than oil and gas, including 
renewable energy. Subsection 8(p) directs the Secretary of the Interior 
to issue any necessary regulations to carry out the OCS renewable 
energy program. The Secretary delegated this authority to BOEM. BOEM 
has issued regulations for OCS renewable energy activities at 30 CFR 
part 585; this notice concerns the reporting and recordkeeping elements 
required by these regulations.
    Respondents are lessees and grantees submitting plans for--and, if 
such plans are approved, constructing, operating, maintaining, and 
decommissioning--commercial and noncommercial renewable energy projects 
on the OCS. BOEM must ensure that these activities are carried out in a 
manner that provides for, among other things, safety, protection of the 
environment, and consideration of other users of the OCS. In order to 
execute its duties, BOEM requires information regarding potential 
purchasers of leases, grants, and rights-of-way, their proposed 
activities and their payments to the Treasury and financial assurance.
    BOEM uses forms to collect some information to ensure proper and 
efficient administration of OCS renewable energy leases and grants and 
to document the financial responsibility of lessees and grantees. Forms 
BOEM-0002, BOEM-0003, BOEM-0004, and BOEM-0006 are used by renewable 
energy entities on the OCS to assign a lease interest, designate an 
operator, and to assign or relinquish a lease or grant. Form BOEM-0005 
was designed to document a surety's guarantee of the performance of 
lessees and grantees with respect to bonds issued on behalf of OCS 
renewable energy lessees, grantees, and operators. BOEM maintains the 
submitted forms as official lease and grant records pertaining to 
operating responsibilities, ownership, and financial responsibility.
    BOEM protects proprietary information in accordance with the 
Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and the Department of the 
Interior's implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2), and under 
regulations at 30 CFR 585.113, addressing disclosure of data and 
information to be made available to the public and others.
    Title of Collection: 30 CFR 585, Renewable Energy and Alternate 
Uses of Existing Facilities on the Outer Continental Shelf.
    OMB Control Number: 1010-0176.
    Form Number:

    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Respondents/Affected Public: Companies interested in renewable 
energy-related uses on the OCS and holders of leases and grants under 
30 CFR part 585.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 267 responses.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 18,784 hours.
    Respondent's Obligation: Mandatory or Required to Obtain or Retain 
a Benefit.
    Frequency of Collection: On occasion or annually.
    Total Estimated Annual Non-hour Burden Cost: $3,816,000 non-hour 
costs. The non-hour cost burdens consist of service fees for BOEM 
document/study preparation, costs for paying a contractor instead of 
BOEM, and costs for a site-specific study and report to evaluate the 
cause of harm to natural resources.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The estimated 
annual hour burden for this collection is 18,784 hours. The following 
table details the individual components and estimated hour burdens. In 
calculating the burdens, we assumed that respondents perform certain 
requirements in the normal course of their activities. We consider some 
information collection activities to be usual and customary and took 
that into account in estimating the burden.
    The following table details the individual BOEM components and 
respective burden hours of this ICR. In calculating the burden hours, 
we assumed that respondents perform certain usual and customary 
requirements in the normal course of their activities.

\1\ In the future, BOEM may require electronic filing of certain submissions.
\2\ Retention of these records is usual and customary business practice; the burden is primarily to make them
  available to BOEM and CVAs.

    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid OMB control number.
    The authority for this action is the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).
